Shane Jackson, President of Jackson Healthcare, Named a Winner in EY “Entrepreneur Of The Year” 2024 Southeast Awards

Jackson Recognized in Program’s Southeast Region for Ingenuity, Ambition and Entrepreneurial Spirit

ATLANTA, June 24, 2024 Jackson Healthcare®, a family of highly specialized healthcare staffing, search and technology companies, today announced that its president, Shane Jackson, has been recognized by Ernst & Young, LLP (EY) as a 2024 “Entrepreneur Of The Year®” for the Southeast region. This prestigious award recognizes leaders of high-growth companies whose visionary ideas and bold actions have reshaped industries, disrupted markets and positively impacted the lives of others.

In his role as president, Jackson serves as the primary guiding force for Jackson Healthcare’s mission of improving the delivery of patient care and the lives of everyone it touches. Under his leadership, the organization has become one of the nation’s largest privately held companies and top healthcare staffing firms.

Evaluated by an independent judging panel comprised of previous EY award winners, leading CEOs and other business leaders, Jackson was selected based on his success creating long-term value through entrepreneurial spirit, purpose, and the demonstration of growth and impact, among other achievements.

“Being named an Entrepreneur of the Year is a tremendous honor,” said Shane Jackson, president of Jackson Healthcare. “When my father founded Jackson Healthcare nearly 25 years ago, his goal was to build a business that not only thrived but served the greater good. I am incredibly proud of what our organization has achieved over the years and humbled by the dedication of the amazing professionals working across our family of companies. I thank them for their collective efforts and extend my sincere gratitude to EY for this recognition.”

Now in its 38th year, the Entrepreneur Of The Year Awards honor many types of business leaders. Honorees include original founders who bootstrapped their businesses from inception or raised outside capital to grow their companies; transformational CEOs who infused innovation into an existing organization to catapult its trajectory; and multigenerational family business leaders who reimagined a legacy business model to fortify it for the future.

Jackson and all Southeast regional winners who were announced during this month’s award celebration are now eligible for the Entrepreneur Of The Year National Awards, which will be announced in mid-November.
